In the modern world continually grows ecological consciousness of societies. We are looking for new and develop the already known methods of energy generation from renewable sources. Designing of simulation models using newest software (i.e. Simulation X) of existing system and on their base building new allow in an easy and fast way to demonstrate their advantages but also find areas that need to be improve. Based on previous experiences and virtual tests [12] finally was managed to create model of Francis turbine control system using water hydraulic elements. This article presents of the system consisting of three connected and interacting subsystems: hydraulic model of the guide apparatus control system, three-dimensional model of guide apparatus and model of water flow through the system of guide apparatus - turbine.
